Hi Jack. Congratulations o


Hi Jack.

Congratulations on your first broadcast gig.

I don’t know if you are following the thread “5K, Anyone?” but some people are using the Canon EOS 5D Mk 2 as a substitute for the RED ONE camera, at a small fraction of the cost ($3k instead of $50K). If you have 25 minutes watch the first video link posted.

I am not at all an expert on broadcast, although I hope to move in that direction. My first step, if I were you, would be to contact the TV station, and ask them what format they use. Different broadcast companies use different formats, and I would think it would be absolutely 100% critical to use theirs. Ask them what they recommend.

Please keep me posted on your success.
